    Welcome to the 2012 edition of the Valencia Open Sudden Death League.

    Rules of the game:

    1. Every day of the tournament that day's matches will be posted. You pick one player who you think is going to win. It's a knock out-system: if the player you picked wins, you're through to the next round. If he loses, you're out.

    2. Till the quarter-finals, you have to pick one player per day. In the quarters, semis and finals you pick one player per round.

    3. During a tournament, you can pick a player only ONCE. Obviously it's important to make smart choices in order to get far. If you somehow have no players left to pick, you're out as well.

    4. You can't pick a player from a match that has started already.

    5a. If the player you picked retires during the match, you're out. If he retires before the match, you're allowed to change your pick.

    5b. If the opponent of the player you picked retires, it counts like a win. However, you can't pick a player whose opponent had already retired from the tournament.

    6. If you want to change you pick, make a new post quoting the old pick. Edited posts containing picks will not be taken into account.

    SCORE FOR THIS TOURNAMENT
    1 correct pick: 35
    2 correct picks: 70
    3 correct picks: 105
    4 correct picks: 140
    5 correct picks: 175
    6 correct picks: 300
    Winner: 500

    This tournament, along with Basel, will revert back to the old format of choosing picks on a daily order of play until the quarter-finals.

    I am in for both.

    There is 1 main draw match on Sunday in Valencia (today/tomorrow) for the risk takers out there that don't want to wait until Monday. I will wait until Monday for my Day 1 pick.

    Schedule of Play - Sunday
    Martin Klizan (SVK) vs Marin Cilic (CRO)

    ANNOUNCEMENT: MUST READ!

    For Basel and Valencia, we have moved back to the days-to-round format. This means that from Monday through Thursday, you must make picks from the daily order of play. From Friday to Sunday, you make picks by round.

    I want to see what Goffin can do. Otherwise, I'll just call tanking on both events.
